Abstract. The article comprises the characteristics of traditional project management (TPM) and agile project management (APM) and indicates that when using a specific concept we should take into account the conditions of the sector in which the organization implementing or participating in IT projects is functioning. For it is not in all organizations that APM is more effective than TPM. Agility at the project level is one of the possibilities of which we should remember when seeking a tool for achievement of the organization's strategic objectives. However, such a tool becomes less effective if its use is not preceded by analysis of specific attainable benefits and conditions which have to be met to achieve such benefits. These conditions comprise, among other, the organizational and decision-making culture, projects financing method, as well as approach to change servicing, risk management or standardization of project management practices.
